Dayboro Butter Factory Fire 1929

The Brisbane Courier of 16th May 1929 reported “…The township of Dayboro has been dealt a severe blow by the total destruction last night of the large and
up-to-date factory of the Dayboro Co-operative Dairy Association Ltd. The valuable plant, and 100 boxes of butter stored in the buildings went up in smoke…”

The article in TheTelegraph of 16th May is a little more accurate than that of The Brisbane Courier. The Telegraph reported that the building “…was partially destroyed…The main part of the building was destroyed, but portion of it including the offices, remained intact…The factory employs 14 hands. Although seriously handicapped by the fire it will be possible to carry on.”
